How Can I Focus on Jesus?
Keep your eyes on Him
Reading the Bible regularly is vital. “To love the Lord with our best love is to love, treasure, and muse on the word of God,” writes Misaras. “The Psalms are filled with the Psalmist’s desire and yearning to muse on God’s word, ponder on His precepts, read and listen to His word, and so forth – especially Psalm 119. When we muse on God’s word and we treasure it, we love the Lord more! To love the Lord with our first love is to live a life of prayer. In 1 Thessalonians 5:17 we have the charge to ‘pray unceasingly’ – when we pray unceasingly, when we breathe the Lord in and converse with Him continually, we spontaneously love Him and give Him the first place.”
